Here are the newest HTC DLX renders: a 5-inch 1080p device for Asia?
You have heard about it - the 5-inch 1080p monster phone that has first appeared as the HTC J Butterfly in Japan, and later resurfaced as the Verizon-bound Droid DNA for the United States. And now the HTC DLX, a phone that could well turn out to be the Asian version of the device. Here are the latest renders showing what the upcoming device might look like.

These images corroborate what we have already seen about the Droid DNA with some typical HTC accents like the slight hump on the back for the camera.

Rumor is that this HTC DLX will debut first in mainland China on December 6th, and later on in Taiwan on December 10th. It will have three color versions: a white, brown and black one.

HTC has redeemed itself a little with this one

DLX is much better name than DNA, and no ugly carrier's logo to spoil things.

Well said.. Especially when HTC's profits are in the red & when Samsung dominates the whole smartphone arena. Samsung makes the best phones. Period, Sales will prove that to you.

just like sales prove the iphone is the "BEST SMART PHONE IN THE WORLD" .......right? I didnt think so bro........The design and premium builds of htc phones will always out weigh the geeky gimmicks and plasticky builds of samusng its time we value what really matters and not a bag full of magic tricks...

Sure, but let's not forget to mention HTC's horrible software, the lack of proper multitasking (they called it a feature), the resource hog sense UI, lack of MicroSD etc, hardware WiFi issues on the One X..

its not so bad bro i think you're exaggerating a bit here to try and justify what i just wrote.....Sense has gotten much lighter as well as better at multitasking and they also are moving from sd cards to 64 gb INTERNAL memory phones......Only thing "some" of us here have a concern for of them is "not as good"
battery life.......not horrible like some seem to carry on about but not amazing either......just good.........if they improve there then im sorry, HTC will undeniably be better than sammy............and yes thats regardless of sales as well

only in appearance their designs are better than samsung but software and features arent equall in my opinon.... if samsung let htc build their phones deisgns that would be the ultimate phone

htc is like buying a great looking car with a crapy engine looks arent eveything but this is one beautiful phone. but doesnt compare to the features of samsung phones, now they havent mention all the spec for this phone but htc is known for lack luster battery life, camera quality, recent lack of micro sd ,and they dont offer any unique features. yes sense is better looking than touch wiz but thats it it only looks better... touch wiz has way more features bulit into it. with launchers and rooting though the look of any android can be changed. Other than design and build htc is behind the curve in comparison to samsung

"i think you're exaggerating a bit here to try and justify what i just wrote"

So, he can't form his own opinion about HTC, like you did about Samsung? Some of us could care LESS about the "plasticky builds of Samsung". What's gimmicky to you, is actually useful to others. Your opinion doesn't make what you say fact. HTC doesn't come close when in terms of features.

every thing you just said is pretty much vice versa in my opinion bro..........Great looking car with a "good" engine........Not great but good.........which is why it is indeed the better "overall" choice of a samsung device......and with sense getting better there will definitely be a "great" user experience in the near future..........Samsung is the total opposite GREAT software but mediocre looks, build and display (compared to LCD)...........I said it before and ill say it again Id rather have beauty and power rather than just power alone........

Which seems to be the main differences of samsung and HTC...

I hear you, to each his own i guess. All depends on what you looking for. For me I always use some form of a phone case, so never really bothered me that samsung use cheap plastic.

Ever wonder why HTC is in the sh!tter you dumb@$$? ever since they released the htc sensation, they've always had at least one little f*ck up that ruined it. for example, sensation had wifi death grip. one s had a touch button bug, and no sd card slot, non removable battery, locked bootloaders, and the list goes on and on. and don't even bother with asus. i've had 3 defective nexus 7's until i got tired of returning it and just decided to settle for the one with fizzling pop cracks with the external speaker.

you might be mad after reading all that but there's a reason why samsung is at the top

Oh great...Now even Samsung has sheep (I think sheepsung would be the proper word). These sheep and fan-boys need to learn that no one company is better than another. A phone (or phones) may be better than another BUT a phone does not define a company. At the end of the day all the companies are trying to do is get you to throw your money at them and the more brainwashed you are, the likelier you are to waste your money needlessly.

Are all these that you're saying from your personal opinion or from others? I certainly don't have any of these problem you're talking about. Bringing UI to your argument, it's obvious you haven't touched a HTC One X with sense 4.1 now with jellybean with sense 4+. By the way, that's stock ROM I'm talking about.

The only problem I see with HTC is the way they run their business. Their devices are top of the line.

Samsung is like a car with a powerful engine but looks ugly and have a terrible handling and rigidity

Er, sales don't make the iPhone 5 (or any phone for that matter) the best phone in the world.

I wont mind compromising a lil bit lag for the sense UI, I have used almost all the OEM phones like HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony, Huawei, Apple and Blackberry phones. But its worth mentioning that HTC is the only company got the upper hand in my opinion. The only thing i dont like is the marketing strategy of htc. Sony, Samsung devices are now selling hot because of flooding advts in the market. I wish HTC could pull up the sales and bring some serious threat to samsung and Apple.

Once HTC, Always HTC

Once a device got defective, doesn't mean they will always produce a defective device. Samsung Wave 2 had a massive touch panel problem. I dont know that you know abt it or not. Did anyone stopped buying samsung ? Same as the Galaxy S3 software.

Not trying to be a jerk but what specific features are you talking about that Samsung has that HTC doesn't.its my understanding there are applications that do the same as pop up play and on the android market

You must've forgotten the case flaws on SGS3 when it was first launched. The truth is still that Samsung did really good marketing. HTC has already admitted that they didn't market the One series very well.

HTC's very first quad core phone announcement got people excited, but took too long to materialize letting other manufacturers announcing their own quad core phones. If HTC bought the phone to the public sooner other than so far later, HTC would have no competition in the quad core device department. Hell, I was waiting for the quad core device the longest time, the moment it was announced a release date a SGS3 was in the work to be release soon.

I always see people talking about lack of sd-card, removable battery, etc etc... They're no longer a big deal as long as the device holds enough internal storage. HTC's battery life has been pretty good to my experience, the 32GB of storage I have on my One X is more than enough. How many movies can you watch in one day that you need so much storage space? Do you really need 32GB or more worth of music on your phone? Once again, it's the business decisions. Why release only a One S on US T-Mobile? Why not a One X on every carrier? That's the reason why HTC's been doing poorly. People wanted choice, HTC didn't give it to them. You want the One X? Go to AT&T.

Performance wise, HTC One X is pretty good on ICS sense 4. It was slower than SGS3, but later made up with sense 4.1 which made it on par with SGS3. (I've tried it, and it's true). HTC doesn't have to do that with their One X until JB 4.1.1 release, but yet they did.

There's many things they could've done to put themselves at the top but they didn't. That's their only failure. Other than the defects that they'll gladly replace, HTC product are great.
